state, local and federal law enforcement officials on the investigation. and nbc news is reporting that 460 national guardsmen are on site as well. a white house official says any event with multiple explosive devices is clearly an act of terror and will be approached as such. we'll talk about that. and earlier this evening, the president himself addressed the nation. >> we're continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it unfolds. and i've directed the full resources of the federal government to help state and local authorities protect our people, increase security around the united states as necessary and investigate that. we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but, make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this, we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> the president saying we still do not know who did this or why and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all t
to get away. so the police, law enforcement, always like to have the element of surprise. so at the point that they do release the photos, that's the point when authorities are asking the general public to please help out with this investigation. >> let me offer you as civilian counterpoint, if those people are the people who did this crime, who laid the bombs there, did everything deliberately obviously, they're facing capital one charges. why wouldn't they have fled immediately? they could be at the seattle border, they could be in mexico, canada, out of the country, anywhere in the world after four days now. >> certainly they could. but we don't know that. we don't know who else was involved. and i think, you know, possibly that's a question better asked when they have the press conference to the fbi. i'm not privy to the inside information. so i'd rather not speculate on why or why not they didn't release the photos. >> okay. let me go back to governor. it seems to me homeland security, and i'm wondering what this does, if it's foreign or domestic. how's it change the equation? >> pro
law enforcement. and they underestimated the resilience of boston. and william pollard would describe it as the arrogance of ignorance. they're going to be caught soon. >> james, underestimating law enforcement and the resources they can bring to this, is the most useful mistake that criminals like this make in these situations, isn't it? >> well, it's true. they underestimate the capability. look, you've got the a-team here. if you look at every great celtics team, red sox team, bruins team, rolled them together, all the players, that's the investigative team. they're going to win. they're going to -- they're going to solve the case. you can see it develop in 72 hours. that was a heartbreaking piece you just did at the elementary school. and i've seen all too many bombing victims over the years. and it's a vulgar crime. a mass murder by bombings and firearms are vulgar, vulgar crimes. >> james, before you go tonight, we're going to talk about this later in the show. but we discussed last night what the nra did, and its lobbying campaign years ago to make these investigations more dif
that? >> my best case scenario, again, if i was in law enforcement at this time, i wouldn't tell anything to the media until i had my whole case put together. you're going to have one chance at this guy. you've got to make the best case you can. as soon as his name or address goes public, you know, the media hoards are going to descend on this whole thing. as an investigator, make your case, then let the media come in. >> what more do you need, you first then jim, than a picture of a guy or person dropping a black bag at the site of a bombing and then splitting? what more evidence would you need to make a case in court than that? >> well -- >> picture of a person. >> that's circumstantial evidence. unless we have a movie of him actually doing it, unless we know that black bag was actually it. you know, there's too many ways as you well know that you can be attacked in court for different reasons, suggesting his hand's really not on the bag and maybe somebody dropped it a second before he walked by. there's a lot to put together from the forensic side other than a picture where he
in all of these events has been the interaction between federal law enforcement and local law enforcement. in the 1993 world trade center bombing because that was really a federal facility, the federal government got involved but immediately almost had a fistfight between fbi and atf. so now what you've got it looks like a good working relationship between president obama and governor deval patrick has allowed a very smooth handoff from the boston police to the fbi. in watching just the press conferences so far, they've been sending the right signals of having a joint communicative working relationship. and that's critical to having an effective investigation. >> you and i were talking before about lockerbie, how you could determine through finding little particles of machinery that this was perhaps done by a certain kind of detonator. how far along are we? we already know now it was something to do with a circuit board. what does that tell you? >> they're saying they found a circuit board. how big of a piece, we don't know. remember in another case, it was about the size of your thumbnai
for law enforcement to put it together. >> the boston police department was one of the early departments to be trained at the oklahoma city, the terrorism institute for in oklahoma city. i think the boston pd is extr e extremely well led and very sophisticated. the fbi has a field office in boston. you couldn't have a better law enforcement investigative community there. obviously, the good thing and i think mr. van zandt focused on it, is the fact that you had an opportunity hopefully to observe a lot of things a as a result of cameras. that comment about the bomb dogs coming in apparently before the placement of these devices. if each of them are 20 pounds apiece, that's a pretty burly person could handle that. may have been two people like tim mcveigh and one of his associates in oak city. they need a lucky break. state trooper who saw that broken license plate, but we've got to get to the bottom of it. we will and whoever's responsible will be tried and convicted and i think mercifully, hopefully, if they are responsible for this horrific act, will be executed d as we did tim mcveig
of a man in a white baseball hat to law enforcement agencies. that, despite a confusing day of reports yesterday, that a suspect had been arrested. they're going through surveillance cameras and civilians. that has helped lead authorities to a person who set down a beautiful bag at the site of the second explosion. authorities have been recovering evidence from the scene, beebes to shrapnel. the pressure cooker. the lid landed on top of a nearby building. they're trying to trace the orig origin. meanwhile, the boston federal courthouse was evacuated yesterday afternoon. employees said they were told a code red was in effect and ordered to leave. all of this added up to a tense day that ended in no resolution. joining us from boston, chris jansing. take us through how president obama will spend his day and the developing situation, chris? >> reporter: good morning. i'm right across the street from holy cross cathedral. and the president will be arriving here for an 11:00 a.m. service. we've got a look at the program. it will include religious leaders, the mayor will be here. governor de
. that's what we're doing here tonight. how the fbi and law enforcement are trying to figure out who's responsible, who and what and why in the terror in boston. this is "hardball," "the place for politics." [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. governor of getting it done. you know how to dance... with a deadline. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle... and go. you can even take a full-size or above, and still pay the mid-size price. this is awesome.

is doing and the law enforcement and so forth is doing is trying to take care of those people who are hurt and families of wounded and so forth. then we go into the investigate which really starts right from the beginning. and they've got to take their time and really do this the right way. examine everything and go through it like a fine toothed comb as we would say down here in texas. and make sure that they've got all of the details. because a case like this, you're not going to start this case overnight. and i know that we've become accustomed to, let's get it done right now. well, that's not going to make it in a case like this. because there may be overseas involvement here with people who may have been involved in this case. and they've got to go through all of those aspects. and it's best to take the time and get it right even if it takes a few years longer. >> mr. cavanaugh it seems to me because of modern technology and the fact everyone on earth seems to have a cell phone with them, camera with them, recording device, we're getting a jump perhaps. when you see a picture of a bag
